Hello n0tail! fnatic has been incredibly dominant lately, winning every tournament you participated in the last 2 months, including ESL ICS September & October, UNGL HoN #3 and most recently, the fnatic PLAY tournament. What is the secret behind your success and why do you think your competitors struggle to overcome you?
With that track record, you are firm favorites to be crowned the DreamHack Winter 2010 champions. Being favorites surely puts extra pressure on you guys to perform, would you call it a positive or negative pressure?
With DreamHack being just a week away, have you intensified your training schedule, will you be attending a bootcamp like fnatic did last year alongside the old KD Gaming line-up?
The competition will be a lot tougher than last year, as KD Gaming, Empire Gaming, Druidz Qpad, TS Gaming, TCM Gaming and Team Wahlin are all expected to make an appeareance. Who do you think could underperform, who do you think could overperform and who do you feel is your biggest competition for the title?
It has been announced that the Digital Youth Awards will take place at the GameFEST in Singapore instead of DreamHack, as it was originally planned. This means you will not have to play against Evil Geniuses, amongst others. Are you disappointed that you cannot test your skills on even ground against them or rather relieved because you'll have an easier time in the tournament?
The Gosugamers.net Steelseries HoN World Cup is in it's semi-finals stage where you're expecting the new KD Gaming. fnatic has been dominant so far, losing just one round in the play-offs to iMpUniTy, do you feel confident going into the match-up?
The other semi-final pair is the American classic between Evil Geniuses and SK Gaming, who do you think will come on top and who'd you rather face in the winners bracket finals?
At 17 years of age, you are one of the youngest professional HoN players at the moment. Do you think that's necessarily an advantage or a disadvantage, considering that reaction time and quick decision making plays a huge role in a match?
You are considered to be one of the most dominant solo mid lane players. What do you think is the difference between a good solo mid and a great solo mid player? Which player do you fear the most when you have to play against them in the mid lane?
I respect and enjoy playing against chu because he has a lot more experience and is a very good mid player, guess you could say I ‘’fear’’ him the most :D"
Thanks for the interview! Any last words, shoutouts, etc.?
Stay tuned to SK-Gaming.com for much more coverage of DreamHack Winter 2010 and the Digital Youth Awards Singapore!
